Children and Family Services

Service Alternatives Children and Family Services (CFS) division embraces our core values when providing care to the children and families we serve. Whether a child is in foster care, a residential home, or being served under a community based contract, we provide those services with integrity and excellence at the forefront of our thinking. We believe in the work we are doing and know we must complete it with the highest standards set forth.

CFS strives to ensure our customer’s satisfaction while providing:

  • Protection – We commit to protecting all children, especially those who cannot protect themselves.
  • Permanence – Every child deserves a place to call home. This may include relative care, guardianship, adoption, and/or independent living.
  • Skill development – Teaching children and families skills to manage and succeed living in the real world.
  • Independence – Preparing children and families to be self-sufficient, productive citizens of their local communities.
  • Future planning – Assisting children and families with the development of future goals and aspirations.

Community Matters

We are highly committed to be active in our communities in order to bring awareness to who we are and what we do. Whether it is teaching youth how to shop at a grocery store or hosting an annual trip to the waterslides, community is an important cornerstone of SA’s values.
